The effectiveness of long-acting penicillins (e.g. benzathine benzylpenicillin) with syphilis is not comparative to their use in treatment of gonorrhea.
Phenoxymethylpenicillin, semi-synthetic penicillins, and first generation cephalosporins are not recommended either for the treatment of gonorrhea.
New treatment recommendations published in 1993 by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) are developed taking into account:
|Medicine||Number of tablets||Number of doses per day||Number of days||Total tablets|
|Ofloxacin Teva 200mg (Ofloxacin)||2||1||1||2|
|Azenil 250 mg (Azithromycin)||4||1||1||4|
|Doxylin 100 mg||1||2||7||14|
